Bonus Round 2: Tic-Tac-Toe



Tic-Tac-Toe


Get three in a row! That's the goal of this bonus round. Inspired by a fanwork event type called kink bingo, this round encourages you to create and fill out themed prompt cards.

This round is CLOSED as of 7PM EDT on 24 June. Late comments are screened and will not receive points.


Please read this whole post before commenting to ensure that your team gets the most points possible. There's a lot of text here, but if you read carefully and follow the instructions step by step, you will be okay.


RULES
Please refer to the first comment thread of this post for an example of how this round works.

PROMPTING

  1. Select a ship to create your prompt card about. Platonic relationships are indicated by an "&" between the names (e.g., Haruki & Kazuma). Non-platonic relationships use "/" (e.g., Haruki/Kazuma). Please don't say "Any pairing," either!

  2. Visit this card generator.
    • Here is a visual guide to using it.
    • The large text box is where you can list prompts if you have your own ideas. Please list at least 9 prompts; you can list more if you want. (The generator says you need at least 24, but it's lying.) Single words or short phrases are better than sentences.
    • Otherwise, you can use the dropdown menu found right below it. Note: some of these prompts lists are NSFW. (NSFW prompts are a-ok as long as you tag for it.) If you don't like some of the options that appear in a prompt list, you can delete them.
    • Text prompts only, please. Also, each card square must be unique—don't list the same prompt 9 times.
    • In "Configuration Options," make sure you select 3x3 and (Normal prompt). This is the most important step!
    • Leave the tic-tac-toe card with its default colors, so everyone can read it clearly.
    • Click the "Create a bingo card" button.
    • Scroll down to see the card that was created for you. If you don't like the prompts it picked, you can reroll by clicking "Create a bingo card" again.
    • When you're satisfied, scroll further down the page until you see a textarea box full of HTML.
  3. Copy and paste the HTML from the box and into the body of your prompt comment, then post!

FILLING

Fill prompts by selecting an individual square to create fanwork for, then leaving a responding comment to the prompt with your newly-created work. (Optional:) If you can fill three squares from a prompt in a horizontal, vertical, or diagonal line, you get a tic-tac-toe (and an additional point bonus)! You can also just fill prompts as you please and get standard points.
  • Prompt squares are labeled as follows:
    A1 B1 C1
    A2 B2 C2
    A3 B3 C3
  • If you're trying for tic-tac-toe, you cannot combine squares into one fill. If your fill can satisfy multiple squares, pick the most relevant square: e.g., one square is sailing and another is pirates and you make a fill about pirates sailing, it's mostly pirates so put down the pirates square.
  • Each fill must stand alone as an individual piece, but all your fills can slot into a larger universe if you'd like.
  • You cannot fill a prompt square more than once, but you can fill every square on a tic tac toe card if you want to.
  • You cannot work with your teammates to get a tic-tac-toe. Only individually achieved tic-tac-toes get the bonus.
  • Multiple people can fill the same prompt square. You cannot "block" others from getting tic-tac-toe.
  • Remember to also follow the general bonus round rules, outlined here.
  • Here is a prompt/fill index for your convenience.

For prompts: 5 points for each tic-tac-toe card (maximum of 50 prompt points per team per round)

For fills:
First 4 fills by any member of your team: 20 points each
Fills 5-10: 15 points each
Fills 11-20: 5 points each
Fills 21-50: 2 points each
Fills 51+: 1 point each
Tic-tac-toe Bonus: 2 points each for the first 12 achieved by your team

All scored content must be created new for this round.


Etc.
If you're hunting through the prompts looking for what to fill, a good trick is to view top-level comments only (see the line of links below this post).

I couldn't resist giving you a treat, Marsaya~

***

For as long as Asahi has known him, Nishinoya has been dangerously reckless. Tanaka is reckless too, for the most part, but he seems to still have the instinct for self preservation that Asahi has come to realize Nishinoya must be completely missing.

For instance, though their entire team is serious about volleyball, Nishinoya is the only one who would intentionally and decisively put himself in harm’s way for a play. Nishinoya is also the only one who got himself suspended from the team for fighting, even though the team has no other libero. He bites into his ice cream, he picks fights with guys literally twice his size, he once smuggled a puppy into school by hiding it in his bag—

And now he’s about to walk out into a torrential downpour in nothing more than ratty sneakers, gym shorts, and a white shirt.

“Nishinoya!” Asahi shouts, because the last thing he wants is for his boyfriend to die of pneumonia, and it outweighs his own distaste for raising his voice. It works, too, because Nishinoya stops by the school’s front entrance and waves with his whole arm when he sees him.

“Asahi!” Nishinoya chirps brightly. “Do you see this rain? It’s insane!”

“You’re insane,” he counters, putting his hand on Nishinoya’s shoulder as if to hold him in place. “Where is your umbrella? Or at least your team jacket?”

“I left the jacket at home, it was way too humid for that kind of thing this morning,” Nishinoya answers, wrinkling his nose. “And I don’t have an umbrella, either. My brother took my old one, and I never got around to getting a new one.” He doesn’t seem remorseful about it at all, and even grins as he adds, “Are you worried about me, Asahi?”

“Yes,” he answers immediately. “Of course.”

Nishinoya’s lips pout thoughtfully, but that melts away into a true smile. He pulls Asahi down by his shirt to briefly kiss him. “I love it when you get protective, you’re so cute. Does this mean you’re gonna walk me home?”

He gestures at Asahi’s umbrella, which he came over clutching tightly, and Asahi nods. “If that’s okay?”

“Boo, bring confident Asahi back!” Nishinoya complains. “You can’t ask someone if you can do them a favor, cuz then what’ll you do if I say no?”

Asahi’s left a little speechless, but Nishinoya just elbows him in the gut. “I’m not gonna say no, though.”

“Oh, good,” he sighs. Hitching his bag up on his shoulder, Asahi steps into the doorway, swings the umbrella out, and opens it up. “It’s not very big, but it should fit us both.”

“We’ll get to snuggle.” Nishinoya seems pretty pleased about this, and steps outside to join Asahi, a hand immediately going around his boyfriend’s waist and rest on his opposite hip. Asahi feels a great warmth along the left side of his body, where he and Nishinoya could not be more tightly pressed, and though the heat spreads to his face he could not be more relieved, given the biting cold around them.

Shyly, he wraps his arm around Nishinoya in turn, and feels the goosebumps on his forearm.

“Oh,” he comments. “You’re still only in a t-shirt.”

“It’s not that cold. And the umbrella’s keeping us nice and dry.”

Asahi wants to argue that it’s only keeping them dry for the most part, since the wind is whisking raindrops around and onto them despite the relief of the overhead barrier. But he doesn’t tend to win arguments with Nishinoya when his boyfriend has already decided something, so instead Asahi reaches into the schoolbag and on his shoulder, and pulls out the gakuran he never wears.

Nishinoya laughs. “Oh, so you do have one of these!”

“Yeah, well…” Asahi trails off, feeling his face grow warm as he confesses, “it doesn’t button up. It’s too tight.”

“Oooooooh—It’s because you’ve got massive pecs, isn’t it?” He smirks, and reaches up to grope Asahi’s chest. “Yup. That’ll do it!”

“Noya!” Asahi protests lamely, unable to swat the hand away because his own hands are full. He drops his gakuran jacket on Noya’s head with a small huff. Noya laughs again, and puts his arms through the sleeves; the jacket absolutely dwarfs him. Asahi thinks he looks really good in his clothes, but he’s way too embarrassed to say so, and settles for putting his arm around his boyfriend again.

Nishinoya is uncharacteristically quiet as they walk to his house together, but his presence by Asahi’s side is sure and steadfast, and he can’t really worry when he’s trying to keep the umbrella above them both and against the wind so it won’t flip inside out. So it catches him off guard when Nishinoya does speak.

“I’m kind of scared I’ll wake up any minute now.”

“Huh?”

Nishinoya’s head gently bumps against Asahi’s arm. “We never have time to do stuff like this. And it’s the kind of stuff I’ve always dreamt of doing with you. It’s so nice.”

“Ah…” Asahi blushes. “But your socks and shoes are waterlogged, and it’s still pouring, and not very… romantic.”

“Are you kidding? You have your arm tight around me, and you’re so warm, and you smell like Asahi. Like, manly body spray and kind of sweaty in a good way. This is the best.”

“Oh.”

“Don’t you like this, Asahi?”

He didn’t need to think about it—Nishinoya was so close, and even though they were walking through a storm Asahi felt such calm because of him. More than calm, even, something bigger and harder to name.

“I love it,” he confesses, and Nishinoya laughs and hugs him tighter.

Asahi is the dad boyfriend, Nishinoya is the smol troll boyfriend, but it works so well.

Also like Asahi has a rack you can't convince me otherwise!
